Refavela is an iconic vinyl record by Brazilian musician Gilberto Gil, released in 1977. This album showcases Gil's exploration of African influences, particularly Nigerian highlife, which can be heard in tracks like "Balafon" and "Ilê Ayê." The rhythmic pop sound of Refavela set the blueprint for popular world music collaborations with African artists. Despite some weak arrangements on slower songs, Refavela remains a timeless example of Brazilian music.
